Collateral research

A walk through the MET is an exercise in experiential learning, no matter what one’s area of interest. Every visit to New York, I make my pilgrimage to the great 19th century painting Heart of the Andes by Frederic Edwin Church in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This year, I strode past the large-scale medieval sculptures, altarpieces, tapestries, and furniture on my way to the Robert Lehman Collection, but then Ack! the Collection was temporarily closed! Disheartened, I turned around and started back through the Medieval Gallery when I was struck by this sculpture in raking light.
